Skills in English Listening Level 1 Course Book The Garnet Education Skills in English series was highly commended in the Duke of Edinburgh English Speaking Union English Language Book Award in 2004. Do you have to listen to lectures in English as part of your studies? Then you need Skills in English Listening. This course builds the skills that help you survive in the lecture room. At Level 1, you learn how to: * understand spoken definitions; * understand spoken times; * understand spoken spellings; * understand signpost language; * identify names; * identify dates; * identify important words; * follow instructions; * follow a narrative; * predict content; * predict the next word; * and recognise important words. As well as preparing students for entry into English-medium study, the Skills in English Course is ideal for students who wish to improve their scores in skills-based examinations for university entry requirements, such as the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Rather than focusing on exam preparation, Skills in English teaches the necessary skills as part of a systematic programme of language development. Skills in English courses are also available in Speaking, Reading and Writing. See the Skills in English website at skillsinenglish.com for additional materials and help.
